A luscious vintage linen of such exquisite quality — they truly don’t make them like this anymore except at the highest end of the textiles range.
A stately 18th century type scroll pattern offers elegant understatement for use on pillows, as a framed fabric panel, top of an ottoman, or as part of a screen or message board backs.
COLOR: It was tough to get the color right in these pics. It looks a bit too neutral here when in fact there is a richer and warmer overall tone to the colors than is shown. The kind of thing when you get the fabric and say, “Oh my gosh this is even more beautiful than I thought!” There’s a subtle hint of yellowish-gold that isn’t captured here but that adds so much when you see it in person.
SIZE: 23.5″ wide + 1.5″ selvedge x 53″ long. 67% linen, 33% cotton.
CONDITION: Excellent — the texture is a nubbly nature that is the nature of the weave and style, not flaws.
Maker: F. Schumacher & Co. was founded by Frederic Schumacher in the late 19th century in New York and went on to become one of the most influential American design houses of all time, working on multiple White House interiors and other historic homes across the decades, employing design doyenne Dorothy Draper, and drawing from history and their own archives in notable design projects.

Why High-End Vintage Fabric Samples? Because the large over size sample and superior manufacturing quality make it possible to access a very high-end fabric for a smaller scale project without the high cost of these classic vintage fabrics, which often begin at over $150 a yard, if they can still be found at all. Other reasons are to access a small amount of discontinued fabric to match or to repair an existing piece in your home.
SUSTAINABILITY: ALL my packaging except tape is 100% re-used. Your invoice is available digitally in your account. I source vintage items and resources either as they are, or to upcycle into new products, giving them a new life. This reduces demand on current resources, preserves history, and keeps valuable items out of the landfill, all of which asks just a little bit less out of our ever-giving Mother Earth. Etsy buys carbon offsets for all shipping, which is a win-win for the sustainability-minded shopper.
